[ih] birth of the Internet?

Hi Folks,

I've been part of an interesting discussion, on another list, that's led 
to the question of when the Internet was actually "born."

Was it:
- when the ARPANET moved from NCP to TCP/IP?
- when the ARPANET was split into two, linked backbones (ARPANET/MILNET)?
- was there an earlier point at which IP was linking LANs across the 
- some other event?
